LANCASTER - At age 40 and holding a place in the LPGA Hall of Fame, Karrie Webb doesn't need to prove anything more in an illustrious career that has seen her capture seven major championships and 41 tournament victories. However, it is days like Thursday's opening round of the U.S. Women's Open that fuel Webb's fire and tell her that anything is still possible at her age, especially when her exceptionally pure and rhythmic swing is on point. After parring her way around the more difficult back nine at Lancaster Country Club, Webb poured in four birdie putts on her second nine for a 4-under-par 66 and a tie with 24-year-old New Jersey native Marina Alex after 18 holes of the weather-delayed 70th national championship for women.

When the summer wind comes blowin' in from across the sea, the song of the piper man that Sinatra once sang about is likely now to be that of a raging rock cover band. At least where the Jersey Shore's music scene is concerned. The man behind a lot of these sounds is Tommy Ciccone. He not only plays in cover bands, like MoFaux, but he also books acts throughout the Shore's loudest live music points, at bars in Cape May, Margate, and Sea Isle such as Elaine's, Maynard's, The Greenhouse, Ocean Drive, The Springfield, and LaCosta.

WHEN IT comes to making wine in North America, New Jersey was an early adopter. Before wine trails and growers' cooperatives, William Alexander and Edward Antill set out to prove that New Jersey wine could stand up to a bottle of vin from across the pond. The year was 1758, and a wine smackdown was issued by Great Britain's Royal Society: Any colonist who could produce a red or white as good as a French vintage would win 200 pounds - the equivalent of some 32,000 pounds today, or more than $49,000.

Rocky took the stage at 12:30 p.m. Sunday in Cape May Court House to pick a winner in the women's World Cup soccer finals - the U.S. vs. Japan. No, not that Rocky. This Rocky is the Cape May County Park and Zoo's Siberian tiger and the top cat at the Jersey Shore. The free Cape May zoo offers vacationers a break from sea and sand, and expects to host 500,000 visitors in 2015, up from 450,000 last year. On Sunday, parents, children, and assorted strollers pressed up against newly installed, handwoven steel wire mesh - which replaces old-fashioned chain-link fencing - around Rocky's grassy habitat.

Here is an excerpt of Craig LaBan's online chat : Craig LaBan: I learned the very sad news this morning that my friend Ed Hitzel - the South Jersey food critic, publisher, and broadcaster - died Monday night at 64 of a heart attack while eating at one of his favorite restaurants, Joe Italiano's Maplewood Restaurant in Hammonton. Eddie, as he was known to friends and listeners of his "Table for One" radio show (on WOND-1400 AM and, more recently, WIP-610 AM), had become a true South Jersey restaurant icon, publishing a well-read magazine (Ed Hitzel's Restaurant Magazine)

THE PIES will be coming out hot and fast at Manco & Manco Pizza this weekend and the owners of the famous Jersey Shore eateries won't be going to trial for tax evasion after all. Charles Bangle, 55, of Somers Point, Atlantic County, pleaded guilty to tax evasion charges in U.S. District court in Camden yesterday in connection to his 2010 personal tax return and for structuring financial transactions in 2011 to avoid reporting requirements....

VENTNOR, N.J. - Some days on the fishing pier, all you catch is a breeze, some sunburn and bloodworm guts on your pants. No matter how much you emulate the old-timers, copying their baits and mimicking their little twitches with the rod, sometimes you just haul in seaweed while "Harold the cement guy," "Father Frank" and "Kenny the cop" are killing kingfish left and right. That's why they call it "fishing, not catching," one saying goes. If that one doesn't make a flustered fisherman feel better, the regulars and ringers who can't seem to miss a fish will tell you "a day out fishing always beats a day at work" and that's hard to argue against - unless you're Lou Kanter.

With a deep breath of ocean air for optimism and some midday waves to stoke an appetite, I've enjoyed largely charmed experiences each year in Jersey Shore restaurants. But each summer, there are inevitable exceptions. Seasonally staffed kitchens, hastily prepped spaces, and a sudden crush of customers can be a recipe for unpredictable dining. And my first few beach meals this summer, focused initially from Northfield north to Long Beach Island, brought unusually choppy seas. There were three meals I wish I could have back: Marty Grims' revamp of Tucker's Tavern in Beach Haven (an overpriced rush job that packed a bland multicourse meal into 45 unsatisfying minutes)

CAPE MAY - Lying 50 yards off the shore of a remote cove along a stretch of mud flats on the Delaware Bay - where prehistoric man once cultivated oysters with a kind of primitive aquaculture - modern-day researchers and aqua-farmers have been working hand in hand for more than a decade to seed and grow New Jersey's beleaguered oyster industry. And the results are paying off in a farm-to-table Cinderella story that has taken oysters out of the depths of blight- and disease-decimated shellfish populations, through the thorny trial and error of scientific research, and into a recovery phase that is producing a marketable product fit for gourmands.
